The White Stripes One Note Show In St. John's

musicThe White Stripes played a secret gig in St. John's, Newfoundland. They didn't play a very long set, in fact, they played a single note. Jack White picked up the guitar and hit a C-sharp, putting Newfoundland in the books as the final province The White Stripes would play on this tour. They played in every province and territory in the nation.

Here's the secret gig, caught on tape.

WTF? There must be some story to this because, if there isn't, that's a pretty shitty thing to do to all of those fans.

That night there was a real gig for ticket holders, but this was all they played at the secret show. One single note.

The note he hit was F, not C sharp, and if I was there I'd be pretty cheesed that they thought it would be funny to just play one note and then leave. Even if it was a joke, it just made them look arrogant.

I'd like to actually retract my comment about them coming off as arrogant, after thinking about it for a while. Still, it was kinda goofy to do what they did.
